Leddy could miss two weeks with an upper-body injury.
The Islanders do not practice until tomorrow, so they likely won’t confirmed the report until tomorrow. If he misses two weeks, he would miss about five games, which isn’t too bad. Expect Brian Strait to have a permanent spot on the Isles’ blue line with Leddy out.
Leddy (lower-body) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Rangers.
Leddy suffered a lower-body injury in the Islanders overtime win over the Maple Leafs on Monday. He was listed as a game-time decision, but will be held out of tonight’s game against the Rangers. Leddy will be replace by Brian Strait.
Leddy (lower-body) is questionable for Tuesday's game.
Leddy left Monday’s game with a lower-body injury and did not return. With back-to-back games, Leddy’s status for tonight’s game is uncertain. Head coach Jack Capuano said he had “no idea” if Leddy will play tonight. Expect a an update a few hours before puck-drop.
The Islanders have signed Nick Leddy to a seven-year, $38.5M contract extension.
Leddy, 23, was set to become a restricted free agent at the end of the season, but is now inked through the 2021-22 season. He has scored eight goals with 17 assists and a plus-12 rating in 61 games this season.
The Islanders have acquired Nick Leddy and Kent Simpson from the Blackhawks for TJ Brennan, Ville Pokka and goaltender Anders Nilsson.
Leddy, 23, had seven goals with 24 assists (31 points) in 82 games with the Blackhawks last season. Leddy has never missed a regular season game in three NHL seasons and should be in the Isles' top-4 with a lot of power-play time.
